Andrew B. Art
Andrew represents electric utilities and other electric industry participants before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on a variety of matters, including regulatory issues under the Federal Power Act. As part of this experience, Andrew has represented the nation’s largest municipal utility in regulatory proceedings, litigation, rulemakings, and settlement negotiations before the FERC since 2001.
His practice also includes providing counsel to electric utilities in matters involving compliance with reliability standards enforced by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and regional reliability Entities, as well as counseling clients on matters involving standards of conduct, generation and transmission system interconnections, and transmission planning and open access tariff matters.
Recently, Andrew has helped clients plan for the transition to more stringent critical infrastructure protection standards to address cybersecurity risks to the bulk power system, and add effective internal controls to reliability compliance programs. Andrew frequently guides clients through successful compliance audits; conducts trainings for compliance officers and other subject matter experts; and trains regional reliability entities on the hearing process, procedures and protocols.
